Continuing our look at the Nike/Jordan Brand/Converse “United We Rise” Pack, we take a look at the “United We Rise” colorway of the Jason Mayden designed Jordan Olympia. The “United We Rise” Jordan Olympia will be worn by Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul during the opening round of the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics. Inspired by the Air Jordan X, the “United We Rise” Jordan Olympia features a White Patent Leather/Full Grain Leather upper, Navy piping, Red accents, and the “United We Rise” tribal pattern.
